Hi...still looking...I think I’m getting the hang of this. Going away for several days but will write more when I get back.

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay,
We have been away for a few days but I am still working on going through all of this. It’s taking some time - I hope that’s ok. Just wanted to let you know.
Thanks,
Lisa

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay...still working on going through the thread. I have actually been applying what I’ve learned from the exercises and looking on a regular basis. It feels pretty constant to me and has for the past few months but perhaps it’s not as often as it needs to be. In any case, I just wanted to send an...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, So by doing those exercises, is it clearer about the body and that the body is AE of thought? Is it clearer that experience does not have a location? Is it clearer that there is no separation? This is where Dave and I would get stuck. Clearer yes. I definitely wouldn’t ride my bike recklessl...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Can you see that both the ‘visual sight’ (colour) and the sensation appear simultaneously but ‘separately’, meaning that none of them is coming from the other or contained by the other? Yes. Do they just appear equally, ‘beside’ each other without any hierarchy or link between them? I'm not ...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, This was so strange. Can a body be found in the sensation itself? No. Does the sensation itself suggest in any way that it is a body? No. So what is the AE of the body? A/E of thought. Is there any connection between the felt sensations and the image in the mirror? No. Or just thoughts (and/...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, So is it clear that there cannot be found a someone/something that is deciding, controlling or choosing? Yes Can it be known how tall the body is? No. Does the body have a weight or volume? No. In actual experience does the body have a shape or a form? No. Is there a boundary between the bod...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, So, when the view on the right is seen, do you have the ‘choice’ not to see? I’m not asking can you ‘choose’ to see something else like another view or ‘black space’ if you close your eyes. The question is, can you turn seeing off? Can you NOT see what is seen? No, that is not possible. Same...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, So I would like you to deliberately say “turn the hand” and see if the hand actually turns? I want you to really see if a thought is needed for the hand to turn or not turn. A thought is definitely not needed to turn or not turn over the hand. In step 1 when thinking about their respective q...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Okay...so now going back to the above, and from carefully looking at what thought calls a head, forehead and eyes, can an "I" of any description be found in anywhere? No. When looking to find a head, could a head be found? Is a head actually known? No. Does the sensation labelled as 'head' k...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, I woke up early and had some time to do this. Is it a head, or is it just a sensation (labelled ‘pressure’) and thoughts ABOUT a head? Just sensation and thoughts/images about a head. Is a head actually found, or are there just sensations again? And is there anything between the pressure poi...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, So do thoughts know anything? Do thoughts actually know if thoughts are random or not? A thought doesn't know anything and can't know if thoughts are random or not. So please redo the sound on and off and tell me what is experienced when sound is on and when sound is off. When the sound is o...

Re: SelfingStrong

Hi Kay, Let me know how you feel and what you notice when the sound is on and when the sound is off. Ok, I did this a few times. I honestly cannot say that I "felt" any different watching with the sound off versus watching with the sound off. The commentary clearly had no impact on what was happenin...
